Still completely insane. That's a team with an aging-but-still-elite Martin St. Louis, and who knows how hard it will be to find a player with his chemistry to play with Stamkos. That team was a few smart moves away from being a cup contender, but getting a wildly overrated Lindback wasn't one of them.

I just think it was a massive miscalculation on Yzerman's part, but he hasn't been a very good GM to this point, so it's not surprising.

Maybe if Gillis waits a few months and Lindback falters, he can still pry the assets from the Bolts.
